Have your students calculate their carbon footprint with iEARN’s Zerofootprint Youth Calculator. The site asks students questions on their travel, diet, and home habits. It will also provide you with information on how to decrease your footprint, and provide you with a specific goal you can meet. This would be great tool to utilize in any environmental upper elementary science unit.
As you can see my carbon footprint is above the average person’s footprint. I need to work on decreasing my footprint score.
